What did we accomplish today? We must take 5 minutes and recap this every day.
Everyone wants to be part of a winning team. We also want to be part of a team that keeps winning. And one of the best ways to keep your momentum going is to celebrate your accomplishments. One reason why the business world is so rife with conferences, award ceremonies, and galas is to commend great work and spark competition.
Accomplishments propel us. They give us confidence and energy. Especially if we write them down and celebrate them occasionally, our results help us remember what we did. And that memory encourages us to believe we can do the next thing, too. Accomplishments provide momentum for tomorrow.
Accomplishments program our brains for action. We train ourselves to focus on things we can control. We actively participated in the accomplishment. Our actions mattered. We cement the connection between our action and our desired outcome.
Accomplishments become a habit. We get what we measure. What we do, what we accomplish, serves as a tangible measure of the value we created.
Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning. Celebrating even small successes will help to keep you motivated and energized.
Summing-up: We can take advantage of tracking our daily accomplishments, both as individuals and as a team. Success breeds success, and once you review what you accomplished, your next goals will be higher than you imagined.
